Leuze's Newest Sensor Remains Compact, even with the Highest Safety Requirements

With the SLS 518, Leuze electronic expands its product line of single beam safety devices of the SLS series with a new, compact and economical type 4 model. It is especially well suited for access and point of operation guarding in confined spaces in tool manufacturing, conveyor and lifting technology as well as in the packaging industry.

January 13, 2017 - With the new type 4 SLS 518 single beam safety device in IP67 plastic housing, Leuze electronic presents a new model which, thanks to its compact housing dimensions and M18 cylindrical construction, is especially well suited for installation in confined spaces. It can be easily and flexibly integrated in a wide range of applications using an M12 plug. In combination with the MSI-TRM monitoring device, the SLS 518 forms type 4 electro-sensitive protective equipment for applications which require Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 or Performance Level (PL)e. Designs with infrared light LED and red light laser are available for different operating ranges. Especially for shorter operating ranges, the infrared model is a cost-effective, type 4 entry-level solution.
